Description. ♀ ( Figs 123E, F View FIGURE 123 ). Fully winged; body length 3.9–5.2 mm. Head black, except mandible, clypeus and part of malar space brown or testaceous; occasionally frons with testaceous stripe along orbits; antenna brown, except antennomeres 7–10 testaceous-whitish; mesosoma black; metasoma and legs brown.Antenna clavate; antennomeres in following proportions: 11:5:25:9:6:6:6:6:5:9. Head dull, granulate and reticulate rugose (with areolae very small, so that superficially the frons seems granulate), occasionally with some irregular keels on frons; occipital carina complete; occiput concave; temple prominent; frontal line complete; POL = 6; OL = 4; OOL = 8; OPL = 2; TL = 1; greatest breadth of lateral ocelli longer than OPL. Occasionally POL twice as long as OL. Pronotum dull, crossed by two weak transverse impressions; anterior collar granulate; lateral regions granulate and partly reticulate rugose; disc granulate; posterior collar very short. Mesoscutum dull, granulate and reticulate rugose. Notauli complete, posteriorly separated (occasionally notauli hardly visible among roughness near posterior margin of mesoscutum); minimum distance between notauli longer than antennomere 2 (7:5). Mesoscutellum dull, granulate. Metanotum shiny, granulate. Metapectal-propodeal disc dull, reticulate rugose, slightly longer than propodeal declivity (22:20), without transverse posterior keel; propodeal declivity reticulate rugose, without longitudinal keels. Forewing with two dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein longer than proximal part (17:11). Protarsomeres in following proportions: 18:3:5:15:24. Enlarged claw ( Fig. 126B View FIGURE 126 ) with one small subdistal tooth and one row of five peg-like setae. Protarsomere 5 ( Fig. 126B View FIGURE 126 ) with one row of 13–17 lamellae; apex with about 10 lamellae. Tibial spurs 1/1/2.
